That’s a lot of self-care, and I think that is all I will say about March’s yardage tally.

February always passes so quickly, doesn’t it?

It doesn’t feel like February should be so short. In reality, it is only 2-3 days shorter than any other month…but that loss of 2 days seems significant. I am quite pleased at how much I knit this month, but as I predicted after January, I did see my yardage go down a tad for exactly the reasons stated: I focused on a few larger projects that were more time consuming. I knit a fifth Sockhead Hat (seems to be a Thing this year for me), I worked on a pair of hand knit socks for my husband, and then I started working on the lovely but time-consuming Ginsberg cardigan. I did do some cross stitch early on in the month, but lost my desire to continue after that point.

Onto March, yes? I plan to finish my cardigan, start a new pair of lovely socks in some yarn that arrived in the mail last week, and hopefully I will resurrect a long-languishing WIP that I do really want the FO of.

How about you? What did you work on in February? Did it seem to fly by? Do you have any interesting making plans for March?

So. 2018, eh?

I spent most of January hiding on my couch– under a blanket and a small warm dog–knitting like a maniac on projects that need to go out the door. This was even with a large amount of cross stitch (not one but TWO projects!) and other projects I worked on along the way. (I laced and framed several finished cross stitch pieces, finished sewing a pair of pants, read three books… .) My month off from Lamby has been good for my crafting–I’m afraid I could get used to having all of this time to leisurely work on pretty handmade things–but it can’t last forever.  February will be focusing on larger projects and more cross stitch, so I expect a small dip in yardage knit next month. But we shall see!

How about you, kitten? What did you work on in January? Have you had a good start to the new year?
